Massage Lotions Explained?

To put it simply, lotions are droplets of oil mixed in water. Lotions tend to be light-weight, non-greasy, and are more easily absorbed into the skin. They are excellent for normal to slightly dry skin. Lotions are normally sold in squeeze bottles with or without pumps and have a liquid consistency. The basic rule is to use lotion during the day and in hot summer months, when you want a product to absorb fast and not leave a greasy residue on your skin.

A lotion is typically a mix of water and droplets if oil. Lotions can be loosely described as any liquid preparations in which inert or active medications are suspended or dissolved.

Any O/W (oil in water) emulsion with a high water content to give the preparation a liquid consistency can be considered a lotion. Most lotions are aqueous or hydroalcoholic systems. Small amounts of alcohol are often added to aid the solubilization of the active ingredient(s) and to hasten the evaporation of the solvent from the skin surface

Most acne lotions are hydroalcoholic which evaporate fast. They are non-sticky and drying.

Lotions are emulsion types that are usually not fast drying. Depending on the water content, higher water and/or less oil is more drying. Lotions are easy to apply to large areas making them a popular choice for massage therapists during the summer months and for clients with hair.
